Yes.

Composting is good for the environment..
Composting Geese is better for the environment
Composting ducks is best for the environment.
Start your composted Duck pile today,
if you do not have your duck
Borrow a neighbors duck to compost own...

Yes, TSC messed up, those are NOT Cornish X. Get used to it, the people at TSC generally know less about chickens than you do.

I have a batch of CX that will be going into tractor. I don't have time to do the 2 feedings per day at 20 minutes. Others say let them eat for 12 hours with unlimited feed. Is this best method or should I leave a calculated amount to get them thru half day then throw little feed in that evening? There are approximately 12hrs a day I can't tend to them....

I don't know how old they are, but they look a bit skinny for buff Orpingtons. I'd lean more toward buff Rocks.

EDIT: Just re-read your original post. They are pretty young yet, so could go either way. But, I did see buff Rocks at my local TSC a few weeks ago, have never seen Orps there.
